I know a woman at work that has gotten a tatoo in honor of having beat breast cancer. And another person we work with is having one designed for having beat colon cancer. I think it is rather odd to show off that you had a disease like this. I can't understand it. Anyone else?

I suppose it's a badge of courage.  A sign that you've battled something dark and scary and now you've come out on the other side free and proud of yourself for making it through.
